On Dec. 18, 2016, Rev. Liu Jin'e, associate chairman of Xianning TSPM of Hubei, chairman of Tongcheng TSPM and senior pastor of Gospel Church, died of disease at 62, according to an obituary released by the funeral committee of the pastor. The memorial service was held three days later.

Brother Dai Youding who worked with her for over three decades expressed his grief and stated that he would imitate her to manage the church in Tongcheng and even in Xianning.

The gospel was preached into Tongcheng County in 1838 and the first church, Gospel Church, was established with a construction area of 1500 m2. In 1988, the local government sold it to a gear factory. One year later, it was relocated in another place, covering 660 m2. With the rise in the number of believers, they moved into a large church with a floor area of 3060 m2  and a construction area of 900 m2 in April 2000. Later it was rebuilt and enlarged until reaching the total construction area of 4000 m2.

Besides, there is another six-story comprehensive building where a Bible school provides a two-year class.

The church has more than 1200 members, in charge of nurturing the 42 campuses and gatherings in the whole county. It launched a fundraising among believers and donated over 60,000 yuan to aid the disaster areas affected by the 2008 Wenchuan earthquake. Besides, it runs a rehabilitation center for the aged, a clinic ministry and a drug treatment and rehabilitation ministry.
